These egg cups are a STAPLE in our fridge for Brody right now. My 1 year old is egg obsessed. We are always making him scrambled eggs and omelettes and this is another way to serve eggs, mix in veggies and things and have quick and easy eats. Making eggs is obviously easy but when you make egg cups, you have them in the fridge or freezer for easy access. And since most of us don’t have time to whip up a gourmet or healthy meal everyday, these are great to keep on hand.

Brody loves having them with some ketchup on top. I love cutting it up and putting it on tortillas too when we have them. Or you can grab it from fridge and eat it on the go!

I cannot wait to hear what you guys think of this recipe!! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok if you try it.

What ingredients you need to make these egg cups:

  • Eggs – I use whole eggs here
  • Spinach – fresh spinach works best. Frozen may be watery here.
  • Red bell pepper – I love adding this in! You can use any paper you want or even add onion too.
  • Cheddar cheese – my kids main food group is cheese, so needless to say there is cheese in these but you can omit if you’d like.
  • Other mix-in ideas: cooked bacon, cooked sausage, any veggies you want

How to make easy and healthy egg cups:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and add in desired mix-in’s
  3. Grease muffin tin and fill each muffin slot with batter
  4. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked. They shouldn’t be jiggly at all when you wiggle the muffin tray
  5. Allow the egg cups to cool for a few then gently remove and enjoy!

FAQs on making egg cups:

  • What is the point of making egg cups? They’re a great way to have a ready-to-eat high protein and healthy snack or to add to breakfast. My 1 year told loves these and we keep them on hand for him. They also freeze well and you can warm up before eating.
  • How long do these egg cups stay good for? In the fridge for 5 days and freezer for 2 months.
  • Can I give these egg cups to my kids? Up to you! I give them to Brody who is 1 year old. Great way to get protein in his diet and veggies too.
